Michael Porter Jr.'s playing time continues to decrease

Michael Porter Jr. had two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3 Pt), zero rebounds, and zero assists across eight minutes in the Nuggets' close win over Philadelphia on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Porter Jr. has continued to see minimal playing time since his successful debut. His stats have therefore taken a major hit too. He's clearly not fantasy worthy at this point.

Michael Porter Jr. musters four points in win over Miami

Michael Porter Jr. supplied four points (2-2 FG), one rebound, and zero assists across three minutes in the Nuggets' win over the Heat on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Porter Jr.'s breakout first game seems like a distant memory. He has been regressing in the two games after his debut. If his playing time ends up being this low in other games, he's not fantasy worthy at all. Nevertheless, he only has a three game sample size, so it's best to continue monitoring his playing time in some more games.

Michael Porter Jr. has three points in second NBA game

Michael Porter Jr. scored three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, and zero assists across seven minutes in the Nuggets' win over the Magic on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

After a terrific debut, Porter Jr. came back down to earth in his second career game. It's hard to tell whether this performance or the previous one will be the norm for this promising player. His playing time may have factored into this box score, considering he played seven minutes compared to 21 in Thursday's loss to New Orleans. Again, wait and see with Porter Jr. to make sure he can be a decent fantasy contributor.

Michael Porter Jr. delivers 15 points in NBA debut

Michael Porter Jr. scored 15 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3 Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, and one assist across 21 minutes in Denver's loss to New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

Porter Jr. came off the bench in his NBA debut and led the team in scoring. It was a promising start to the oft-injured player's NBA career. Much cannot be taken into context considering this was his first game, no matter how good the start was. He is on a bench role after all. It would be best to monitor his performance and playing time in a few more games before deciding whether he is fantasy worthy. If he is still on the waiver wire, feel free to pick him up if another player on your team has been putting up underwhelming stats. In essence, this is a "wait and see" approach.

Michael Porter Jr. in the mix for starting role

Michael Porter Jr. is among four players who will get the opportunity to land the starting small forward spot for the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact

Porter Jr. has still yet to play NBA minutes, but being in contention for a starting role shows the progress he has made. Though it will be competitive to receive the starting role, Porter Jr. will be impactful when at full strength. Consider him a worthy late-round selection.
